        Hello

        Here is a link to my site with some big birds, mostly raptors is
        what I specialise in, these are found in remote places of Siberia and
        as far as tajikistan !

        I find the most difficult part is to choose a pose, there is
        nothing worse than a well stuffed bird that does not look interested
        in anything, flying poses are great but a big bird can take up a lot
        of space, standing means you have to create the look of the creature,
        he has to be focused on something and having the wings just a little
        open as if rady to fly gives them a look of alertness and life, also
        mounting them on something is a big choice, sometimes I find a good
        branch and make a wall mounting but I prefer some slamm wood base
        that they just sit on , it makes the completed item more accessable
        for low level display.

        Squirrels are quite common in the woods here, there is always one
        or two that die in the harsh winter and become frozen so walking and
        collecting frozen squirrels for stuffing is not to difficult, finding
        birds is more hard and takes a lot of time, maybe it is possible to
        find two or three a year at most this way, to hunt and kill would be
        sad but I think its ok to find recently deseaced, even though in some
        countries it is not strictly leagal :-((
